, people like bob rubin and larry summers who are close confidants of the obama administration are probably telling them, "look, if we start prosecuting all kinds of people for you know, x, y and z, there's going to be major instability in the markets. people are going to flee america. they're going to withdraw capital from the american financial system. it'll be a disaster. jobs will be lost." but it's just not an acceptable it's explanation. i think they're -- >> why? >> well, just because the rule of law isn't really the rule of law if it doesn't apply equally to everybody. i mean, if you're going to put somebody in jail for having a joint in his pocket, you can't let higher ranking hsbc officials off for laundering $800 million for the worst drug dealers in the entire world. people who are suspected, not only of dealing drugs, but of thousands of murders. i mean, this is an incredible dichotomy. and eventually, you know, it eats away at the very fabric of society when some people go to jail and some people don't go to jail. >> but do you ever have the sense that those guys are, you know

and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the obama administration has agreed to show two congressional panels the stated legal rationale for assassinating u.s. citizens overseas. on thursday, the white house directed the justice department to release a controversial 2010 memo to the house and senate intelligence committees. the memo details the administration's legal justification for targeting the american-born cleric anwar al awlaki, who ultimately died in u.s. drone strike in yemen. the memo's release follows growing calls from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for access to the administration's guidelines for drone strikes and other attacks targeting u.s. citizens overseas. a bipartisan senate letter demanding the memos earlier this week had accused the white house of "practicing secret law." it also follows this week's leaking of a white memo that allows for the killing of americans through an expansive definition of what constitutes an imminent threat. at a news conference in washington, attorney general eric holder was asked what he is releasing the drone memos publicly after disclo
exactly the obama administration thinks these strikes are legal. they say, let me say as simply as i can, "in full accordance with the law, the united states government conducted targeted strikes." "in full accordance with the law." we know that they do think it's legal. but they won't say why they think it's legal. the closest we have come to learning about how the obama administration justifies drone strikes is this. in the fall of 2011, "new york times" reporter charlie savage wrote this story. this is about a week after al awlaki was killed. the story describes a super secret 50-page memo written by an office within the justice department that effectively serves as the obama's administration's legal justification for why they think it's okay to kill an american citizen without a trial. now "the new york times" did not actually get to see this memo. they did not publish the memo, nor did they quote from it directly. the momentum mow was described to the reporter by anonymous sources. and that's when things got really weird, because after the "times" reported on the existence of the me

the system. we run a risk in deciding if the obama administration has been tempted to say we don't want to be the hegemonic provider of security at these public goods to the world. let this be another big player at the u.n., but another belly up to the bar player at the u.n. in turtle bay. let's let the collector worry about it. they will worry about it and waste damaging to us. the most important thing is that the u.s. doesn't understand a guarantee system as an act or from the outside, the consequences going to be a scramble among scared and worried racing great powers who we all should fear we come to in south china sea. post rss if you were the last two u.s. ambassadors to the u.n. >> host: the last two ambassadors. well, here's the thing. john bolton was excoriated as someone who despise the u.n. that you could chop off the top seven or 10 stories that no one would ever notice there at its headquarters. >> host: do you agree with that statement? >> guest: i agree about 80%. as somebody said, i've actually found found it quite conciliatory and the message is american liberals need t
justifications for the obama administration's unprecedented use of targeted drone strikes against al-qaeda suspects in foreign fliagsz, including american citizens who pose an imminent threat. the white house went on the defense following that report. >> i want to be clear, legal justification for killing american citizens without any trial. >> i would point you to the ample judicial precedent for the idea that someone who takes up arms against the united states in a war against the united states is an enemy and, therefore, could be targeted accordingly. >> jon: what the hypocrisy here? >> you might be thinking of david jackson's piece in u.s.a. today, what if this was bush's drone policy? and the ren dig in guantanamo and all the things that happened in the bush administration where main stream were fired up and now they have been quiet. you leave it to folks like jon stewart to say, the obama people said that we would be fully transparent the bush administration. >> not at all. it is shocking to me if this had been george bush 43 or 41 as the liberal press would have had it front p
, most of them under the obama administration with absolutely no transparency. this has killed roughly 3,000 people and according to the stanford university report that was just issued, some 800 of them may be civilians including women and children. it is finally time that congress the senate this week finally stop being brain dead and started challenging this the administration on its patently absurd explanation how this legal a, ethical and wise. at this point we're going to have the debate because barack obama has been doing it. >> jon: so for president conducting, it's tough for the liberal press to cover? >> it's after the fact, after the election. you are now starting to see criticism ratcheted up by the likes of the far left mother jones magazine and even the "new york times" editorial wrote in this week. it brought back, said the writer memos written by george w. bush to justify illegal wiretapping, kidnapping abuse and torture. now, the "new york times" is starting to compare the obama administration to george w. bush, this is significant shift. >> the other thing even the natio
worrying was years ago, but at least we can start now. there is no evidence the obama administration has yet to figure that out. lou: as to the partisan issues, african but those to the side for a moment and look at the reality because there have been failures, republican and democrat throughout the course of this regime path to nuclear power. and it is now a nuclear power, and we need to recognize it as such. what are the options available to the united states in response to north korea which is basically telling its largest benefactor and principal ally, china, to step aside. >> let's be clear. the clinton administration failed, the bush of ministration failed, the obama administration is failing. it is definitely a 20-year-long bipartisan failure, and the reality is as long as there is enough. there will be north korean nuclear weapons. the chinese could change that, but so far they have shown no inclination to do so. i think realistically the only long-term solution is to find a way to reunify the peninsula peacefully, and i think the key there is china, which we need to be talking t

outlets are facing criticism after it was revealed they complied with an obama administration request to hide the location of a secret u.s. drone base in saudi arabia. the base was first used in 2011 to kill muslim cleric and u.s. citizen anwar al awlaki. the paper discusses location of the first time this week, reportedly because the base's architect, john brennan, is now nominated to head the cia. the washington post admitted there were also part of "in informal arrangement among several news organizations that have been aware of the location for more than a year." critics are questioning the papers' silence, particularly because other outlets noted the location of the base months ago. the times of london mentioned it in july 2011 while fox news notification and an online article before broadening the language to say "arabian peninsula." adrian chen wrote -- a hunt is underway in southern california for former police officer accused of killing three people and launching a targeted offensive against the l.a. police department. christopher dorner, a former navy reserve lieutenant, pos
